Maple Nut Energy Bars

These super tasty granola bars are crunchy, salty and sweet, and melt in your mouth as you chew. Full of vital nutrients, they pack a power punch of energy when you’re on the go. Wrap them in plastic to add to any lunchbox 🙂

For a raw option, skip baking the oats. You can get creative and add more ingredients like cacao nibs, spiralina powder, goji berries, and more!
